Lorna Tseckares
writes: Our festivities began the
evening of May
11 with a wonderful dinner at
Cynthia and
Dick Perkins’
home in Stow. It
was great getting
to see classmates again and renew old
acquaintances. Just before dinner was
served, we were treated to a demonstration by the Stow Minutemen, of which
Dick is a member of long standing. They
marched up the long driveway, drums and
fifes sounding
the way. The
leader gave us
some history of
their group,

dinner. It was a very
lively evening.
Bright and early Monday May 12, after breakfast at the Concord Inn,
we climbed into the bus
and made our way to the
Minuteman National Historical Park Visitor Center where we saw a movie
about the events leading up to “The shot
heard round the world.” This set the stage
and gave us much to think about.
We proceeded to the Lexington Green,
where a National Park Service guide
joined us for the rest of the morning. His
talk was filled with
names, numbers, dates,
and more information
of the time than any of
us could remember for
long, but it was very
interesting. Next to

and then a gathering place for the Rebels, as they were
referred to. Another guide provided us with glimpses
into the way people lived in those very small houses all
those centuries ago.

advantage of being in downtown Concord to walk to
some of the historic sites, shop in any number of small
shops, or take a nap. The weather was cooperative, a
beautiful spring day with the last of the spring bulbs and
flowering trees still in bloom, thanks to a very cold and
wet spring.
Dinner that evening at Charles and Lorna Tseckares’
was very pleasant. The evening was warm enough to be
outdoors with people getting a chance to visit in small
groups, moving from one to the other.
Friday, May 13 Another beautiful day, not unlucky at
all!! We left the Concord Inn at 7:45 am to visit the
Bunker Hill
Monument in
Charlestown

Boston, right).

for the Dale Chihuly exhibit in the new wing. Others
spent more time with early American Art, also in the
new wing. Charles Tseckares worked with the English
architect, Sir Robert Fostor, the lead designer of the new
wing, and could give us some insights into that ten-year
process.
We returned to the Concord Inn in time for another
wonderful dinner at the “Boardman’s Barn,” a renovated

recommended. Then to King’s Chapel and the Old Burying Ground, where many of the patriots are buried.
Next we went to the Museum of Fine Arts for small
group tours of the art of the Revolutionary Period by
very knowledgeable Museum guides. We had free time
to go wherever we wanted in the Museum. Many headed
Altogether, it was a very successful and fun two days
and three nights for a group of about 46. These MiniReunions are a wonderful way to keep in touch with
classmates between college-held reunions, and we as the
committee recommend that you take advantage of one
near you-- or far away, for that matter-- if at all possible.

Dear ’57 Classmates:
A year from now, June 2012, will be our 55th reunion and a new slate of Class Officers.
Meanwhile, we have to get from here to there. Clark Griffith and The Salt Hill Gang are hard at
work to make a great reunion. Your present Class Officers are setting elections in motion for
the next Class Officer positions:

Please consider joining your fellow classmates in the administration of class business by volunteering to serve. If interested please ask me any questions you may have. To place your
hat in the ring please forward your bid to me at [email protected]
For a time line for the process we are hoping to have all hopefuls lined up by the end of
2011. Should we end up with more than one candidate for any office, we plan to hold an
electronic election of Class Officers in the spring of 2012.
While there is some work involved in being a Class Officer it is a lot of fun because you get to
know and work with some great people… people you may not know quite that well today. Ask
any of your present Class Officers and they will agree.
The ring is wide open. Any hat will do.

Seeds of Peace Interns
Dickey Center Update
The John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding has announced the
award of two scholarships for
a Seeds of Peace (SOP) mission. These scholarships were
conceived and funded by the
Class of 1957, one by the
class itself and the second by
individuals in the class.
The support started with six
57s and their spouses traveling to Israel/Palestine with
Seeds of Peace in April 2010
Once there they realized there
was a deeper Dartmouth connection than just the class, a
connection worth supporting and very exciting.
A ’57 group visited the SOP Camp in Maine during August
2010 and participated in a panel presentation at November
2010 Homecoming. Class meeting voted to support the project financially.
Interns were selected from the 50 Great Issues Scholars
(GIS). GIS are freshmen who add study at the Dickey Center
to supplement their regular coursework. The two recipients
for 2011 will participate in the SOP camp in the summer and
plan a visit to the Middle East during the winter term as part
of the Dartmouth Plan. The recipients are:
Rachael Siegel ’14 - Class of
1957 Scholarship
Rachel graduated from John P.
Stevens High School in New
Jersey. During her summers
she participated in the Stanford
Educational Program in Beijing, China (2008), the New
Jersey Scholars Program for
India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh (2009), and was a lifeguard and swimming instructor
at Oakcrest Day Camp (2010).
She has earned the Girl Scout
Gold Award, is a cellist in the
Dartmouth Chamber Orchestra, and is a member of the
Dartmouth Chinese Culture Society.

In her SOP application, Rachel mentions her Reformed Jewish background and says, “The ability of a third party to resolve conflicts through mediation drew me to Seeds of
Peace. A summer spent being part of a support network for
teenagers engaging in a conflict resolution program while
still enjoying a traditional summer camp experience would
be very meaningful to me…I also believe in the larger mission and goals of Seeds of Peace.”
Saara-Anne Azizi ’14 Funded
by Bruce Bernstein ’57 & Lita
Moses, and Bob McCollom ’57
Saara-Anne graduated from
Merion Mercer Academy in
Pennsylvania. In high school she
researched global health, maternal and child health, and biological warfare and examined the system of healthcare in the United
States through the perspective of
hospitals. Saara-Anne was varsity
captain of both the track and cross country teams and a
summer camp counselor. She serves as a research assistant at
the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center for Brain Imaging.
In her SOP application, Saara-Anne mentions her Muslim
Afghan father and her Catholic French mother. She says, “ I
love what Seeds of Peace does, drawing young people together to address regional conflicts on a political and personal level. The thought of generations of young people
growing up and thinking of a whole group of people as ‘the
other side,’ alien and unknowable, terrifies me…I believe
that fundamentally it is the richness of difference tied to a
single connection, a thread of shared humanity, that allows
the greatest discussions and peace-making to occur. Seeds
of Peace creates that connection…”

Editor’s Choice
Each year the incoming freshman class at Dartmouth is
assigned a book to read over the summer prior to reporting in September. The book for the Class of ’15 is The
Travels of a T Shirt in the Global Economy: An
Economist Examines the Markets, Power, and Politics
of World Trade. The book is included in the ’57 Newsletter to give members of the class an idea of what the College is currently assigning to its new class.
Pietra Rivoli, PhD is Associate Professor at Georgetown
University's McDonough School of Business, where she
specializes in international business, finance, and social
issues in business.
According to the synopsis, “Pietra Rivoli takes audiences
on a fascinating around-the-world adventure to reveal
the life story of her six-dollar T-shirt. Traveling from a
West Texas cotton field to a Chinese factory, and from
trade negotiations in Washington to a used clothing market in Africa, Rivoli examines international trade
through the life story of this simple product.
Combining a compelling story with substantive scholarship, Rivoli shows that both globalization's critics and its
cheerleaders have oversimplified the world of international trade. As Rivoli spoke with businesspeople around
the world who played a part in her T-shirt's life, she was
forced to confront her own assumptions about the political, economic, and ethical effects of globalization.
Bill Davidow ’57 (below) has been
a high-technology industry executive and a venture capital investor
for more than thirty years having worked at managerial positions at Intel Corp., Hewlett Packard and
General Electric. He is now an active advisor to Mohr
Davidow Ventures, a venture capital
firm. An electrical engineer by training, after Dartmouth, he went on to
earn graduate degrees at California
Institute of technology and Stanford
University.

overconnectivity, most wrongly assume he is referring to the over-

Trained as a classical economist, Rivoli expected the
story of her T-shirt to reveal the undeniable benefits of
global free trade and the misguided ideas of the antiglobalization movement. Instead, she found that "free
markets" usually aren't free; that even the staunchest
allies of free trade regularly benefit from its restriction;
and that the alleged "victims" of globalization are often
its greatest beneficiaries.
In her lectures, Pietra Rivoli uses a simple T-shirt to reveal the politics and the human side of the globalization
debate. Within the fabric of every product are fascinating
businesses, good and bad politics, revealing histories,
and especially the hopes and dreams of real people.
These people's stories and the story of the T-shirt that
ties them together comprise a nuanced look at the economics and politics of globalization.”
abundance of technology in our lives. All of us are
aware of the nagging buzz of iPhones and Blackberries as they disrupt meetings, meals, and movies,
with their never ending stream of emails, instant
messages, and tweets. This book, by contrast is about
human behavior: how the actions society takes have
become so complex and interwoven that the simplest
ones have effects far beyond what we imagine.

Bill’s analysis of the role of the Internet in the Icelandic bankruptcy and the 2008 stock market crash
is especially interesting and topical.
As he says, “One of the reasons I wrote this book was
to sensitize people to the potential perils of interconnections. I have focused primarily on the Internet,
but I hope I’ve also made it clear that other types on
interconnections also present us with challenges.”
Ed. Note: Here is a fascinating perspective of the influence of the Internet by someone who has been in on the
ground floor from the beginning. His special insight
makes this a must read.

Notes from All Over
From The University of Delaware Student Newspaper 2/21/2011
Though he has kept
a lifelong fascination with Abraham
Lincoln, Thomas
Herlihy III, 74, a
Wilmington lawyer,
never thought he
looked like the 16th
president of the
Union. Then he
attended a Halloween party dressed in a top hat and beard and was complimented on his striking resemblance to Honest Abe.
Although there are many factors that fed his fascination, Herlihy says, Lincoln's mastery of the English language sets him
apart. Writings such as the Gettysburg Address inspired Herlihy most. "He had an amazing ability to use the most appropriate language for the appropriate times," Herlihy says.
"During the Civil War, the nation needed a verbal boost, and
that's exactly what he did. It boggles my mind."
The library also received an extensive historical map collection that belonged to Herlihy's mother, Pearl Herlihy Daniels.
Daniels was a member of the University of Delaware Library
Associates, founded in 1958 to enrich the Library's special
collections, and she served on its board of directors. Both Herlihy and his brother are currently members of the Library Associates.
"When I was first told I looked like Lincoln, it gave me the
confidence to start making presentations at schools and
events," Herlihy says. "I've been doing it for over 20 years
now, and I really love it."
As head of the library's special collections department, Timothy Murray was responsible for getting in touch with Herlihy
and putting the collection on display. He says that the collection is a great addition to the already strong Lincoln Exhibit.
In celebration of Abraham Lincoln's 202nd birthday, Morris
Library is displaying a collection of Civil War era books in the
Lincoln Collection donated by Herlihy. The 18th century writings explore Lincoln's life, the Civil War and slavery in the
Confederate South. An active member in the Lincoln Club of
Delaware for more than 30 years, serving as president in 1982,
Herlihy decided to donate his collection to the university because he felt it was the best way for others to experience it.
"Working on the current exhibit in our Lincoln Exhibit gave
me the opportunity to examine the Herlihy collection closely,
and the items on display include a number of unique pieces,"
Murray says, citing an 1860 presidential campaign handbook
as one of the most prized items. The handbook includes a 30page biography and portrait of then-candidate Lincoln. Murray
praised it as one of the first in-depth pieces written on him for
a national audience.
"I used to have separate collections, but I did some research
and combined them," Herlihy says. "My family had an ongoing relationship with UD, so I knew it was the right place to
display the collection."

WHISTLER, BC (April 10) – Green Mountain Valley
School’s Ryan Mooney (Charlemont, MA) won the gold
medal in the men’s giant slalom, the final event in the
2011 Whistler Cup. After sitting in second behind Austria’s Marco Lander after the first run, Mooney laid
down the fastest second run time to edge out Lander
for the gold. Mooney topped the field by just twohundredths with Lander in second and fellow American
Colby Lane in third. Two days earlier Ryan took silver in
the Men’s Super G Race.
Ryan, grandson of Frank Mooney ’57, hopes to visit
Dartmouth next summer.
Clark Griffiths writes: Jean and Mike Smith with Happy and
Clark Griffiths enjoying a beautiful day of spring skiing from the
top of Canon Mountain in New Hampshire, April 7th, 2011. In the
distance is Mt. Lafayette on the other side of Franconia Notch.
Cannon is still run by the State of NH and allows free weekday
skiing for NH residents over 70. I believe that the Griffiths,
Smiths and Monk and Jane Bancroft are the only class of 57 couples who both actively downhill ski together. Bob Macdonald writes: The end of the line for this six foot alligator which I helped catch right in front of our place in Lake Worth
FL. His boots don't fit my feet! This gator was an easy catch. He
was sunning himself at the water's edge and he was relatively
small. A year ago it took about an hour to land an 8-footer. There
was a lot of fight in that guy. And his boots didn't fit me either!

From Joe Stevenson: This is my annual rallying cry of “ ‘57 Out
for The Bartlett Tower Society.” In the May/June issue of the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine, a list of Bartlett Tower Society (BTS)
members was printed to recognize those who have included Dartmouth
in their estate plans. If your name was listed, thank you! For those
who were not listed, does your estate plan provide for Dartmouth? If
so, you may be eligible for membership in the BTS by simply sharing
the details of your provision with the Gift Planning Office. We would
love to see your name added.
For more information about how you can join the ranks of the Bartlett
Tower Society, visit the Dartmouth Gift Planning website at
www.dartmoutgiftplanning.org , contact me at 910-420-2596 or the
Dartmouth College Gift Planning Office at 800-451-4067.

“Other days are very near us, as we sing here soft and low,
We can almost hear the voices of the boys of long ago.
They are scattered now, these brothers, up and down the world they roam
Some have gone to lands far distant, from the dear old college home
Some have crossed the silent river, they are looking down tonight
And the thought of these old brothers, makes our love now burn so bright.”
